please let me know what you think it is
Alrighty u know where i can get some bushings or did you just use the ones that came on the replacement rod? and yeah Im going to do the pluggs and wires at the same time. im excited to get my VR6 back sense i got this one with that rattle its nothing compared to my old one so i might have to race some ricers around here in Boise and turn some heads! did you get your rod from the ecs tuning?I can't get on youtube right now. Is the sound from 2k-4500k rpm? if so its the shift rod. Buy both kits and the shift rod. took me about 30-45 min to replace it. Be carefull when pulling old one out. pull out straight and it will slide out easy. when you install the new one it will be tight but don't force it in. tap with hand or rubber mallot. follow this thread for replacement. also, take off eng cover its easier to do it.

alright sweet! ill do that. thanks for the heads up. In that link u sent me on how to do it. does it show you where to put the seals and what not? sorry for all the q's from what i take it ur a mechanic and know what the hell ur doing lolGet the rod from ecstuning. Get the gasket kits from them also. Reason is the rod is like $140 from dealer and the gasket kit is $3 more @ the dealer. Do not, I repeat DO NOT just replace the bushings on old rod. If your in there and removing it then just do it right. And don't go crazy on plugs. Just get the oem ngk's from advanced auto.
haha well whatever works you guys are knowledgeable about it!mechanic?
